This hotel is a must if visiting San Antonio in Ibiza. The location is excellent just a 5 minute walk to sunset strip and about a 10 minute walk to the centre. You a far enough away from the noise for when you have had enough of partying.
The hotel is immaculate and the rooms are cleaned everyday with fresh towels daily, the staff are friendly and polite. We ate at the pool bar in the day and the food was very nice and reasonably priced.
The pool area is a great spot to chill out during the day and there were always plenty of free sun beds to chose from, you did not need to put your towel down to beat the crowds. If you prefer the beach it is literally on the doorstep. There is also a jacuzzi at the pool area which was a fantastic way to cool off.
I would recommend this hotel, it is far better than some 4 star hotels I have stopped at in the UK. I booked the hotel after the reviews on this site and I am pleased I did.

I've written reviews on extolling the virtues of this great, family run, hotel, but this time I have reason to write something a little different. Early this June, whilst on holiday in the hotel, I was taken ill and had to go into hospital. I want to extend the eternal gratitude of myself, and my family, to the the management and staff, who without reason or question were so helpful and caring in calling the emergency services, and, also, making sure my belongings, left in my hotel room, were safe. I will never forget their kindness and hope to be visiting for many years to come. THANK YOU SO MUCH GRAN SOL!!!!!

We went here to celebrate milestone Birthdays and unlike the "Ashley's" had a spot on time.

Location was great with lots of chilled bars around on the beach(two minutes slow walk) and similarly good reasonably priced food around. A walk along the coast into town about 9pm was great to see the sunset and a good time for Mambo, Cafe Del Mar etc. which are about 5 -10 mins down then another 10 mins into town. (Keep going past the harbour for more chilled bars)

Pool during the day was good and the Bar is reasonably priced for "early evening liveners" Every one who stayed here seemed to be relaxed and friendly and a good mix.

The hotel was inexpensive, yet the rooms were plenty big enough (we twinned) and the bathrooms were of a reasonable size. The balcony was fine and although the views weren't great we spent little time sitting on the balcony.
The hotel was very clean and the rooms well serviced. Air con and ceiling fans in room, very light and airey.
The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was ever a problem for us.
We all came back relaxed and would go to this spot again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Some rooms on a higher floor will have a sea view

I loved every aspect of this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was amazing and a great deal of choice. We could see the sunset from our room which was an added bonus. There was never a problem getting a sun lounger as there were plenty available. I will definatley be returning back to this hotel and like a lot of other guests I will want to come back year after year. If your looking for an affordable hotel that offers more than its 2 star rating then this is the hotel for you. Ibizas west end is about 15 mins walk but the sunset strip is on the doorstep.

Having stayed here a week earlier in the season 2 years ago with a friend, we were so impressed we decided to return with our husbands and my 8 year old daughter. I would stress that the hotel itself is immaculate, the cleaning staff do a grand job with sheets changed daily, the pool and surrounding area is thouroughly cleaned every monring, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The issue for us was the marked change in clientelle, not just in the hotel itself which caused disturbance to our sleep, with a group above our room seemingly moving furniture about and being raucous through the early hours, groups choosing to meet in the corridors and banging on each others doors, but also the area surrounding the hotel seems to have attracted a similar crowd - all adding up to little sleep for those not partying all night and able to sleep through the day. I can't fault the hotel itself but I think they will need to consider what market they are aiming for if they are to remain at the top. As a destination for a family, we would not consider returning here unfortunately.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the gardens are quieter

, Public Relations Manager at Hotel Gran Sol Ibiza, responded to this review, June 28, 2012
Unfortunately some guests do not take into consideration that there are other people in the hotel that want to rest, we completely understand your view and would like to apologize for what has happened.
One of the main duties of our two night porters is to stop any behavior / noise that could disturb other guests. If you feel someone is being to loud and bothering other guests please inform our night porters dialing (9)
This season in cooperation with various hotels in the Calo des Moro area we have contracted the two private security guards that patrol the streets around the hotel at night. They will stop any inappropriate behavior and are in direct contact with the police.
We hope you do decide to visit us again some time, Lots of our regular clients chose to visit us May, September or October

This hotel really was great value for money. An excellent location with very friendly & accomodating staff. Not far from Cafe del Mar & maybe a 20 minute walk to the West End. The food & drinks were reasonably priced, the pool area was clean & had a nice mix of couples, families and all-male/female parties. The rooms were clean & well presented. I would have no hesitation in booking the Gran Sol in the future & I'd recommend it to anyone.
